14 days to go!
The countdown is on to the premiere of Mariah Carey‘s new single ‘The Art Of Letting Go’.
Set for a November 11th debut exclusively on Facebook, the cover for the Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins produced cut was unveiled seconds ago on the diva’s official page on the social media site.
As previously reported, the 43-year-old has teamed up with the online giant to launch the single, which serves as the second cut to be lifted from her upcoming album of the same name.
Lead release ‘#Beautiful’ became Carey’s biggest hit in years (peaking at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and being certified Platinum by the RIAA in July for sales in excess of one million).

Of course, billing Patti Labelle‘s career ’pretty impressive’ would be an understatement, celebrated for a voice and sound that’s served as the soundtrack to the lives of many a generation. Last night, in celebrating her work, Mariah touched down at ‘Black Girls Rock 2013′ to present her with the ‘Living Legend’ award, as seen in the snaps waiting for you below!

It didn’t come when you wanted it, but oh is it right on time.
Mariah Carey‘s long-awaited follow-up to Spring hit ‘#Beautiful’ has been long-overdue. So much so, that we wondered whether the track or its parent album ‘The Art Of Letting Go’ would ever see the light of day.
Fret not, Lambs. For, the diva extreme has revealed the LP’s title track is the latest single to be lifted from the serially delayed set; with its release coming sooner than one might think.
